Ham Radio Team

Ham Radio

The goal of the Bothell Ham Radio Team is to provide reliable, licensed, amateur radio services to the city and surrounding areas during a major event when normal lines of communication may fail or be overwhelmed. Ham radio helps make sure vital information gets where it needs to go for the safety and recovery of our community.

Are you already a licensed ham radio technician in the Bothell area? Let us know and join us in helping Bothell continue to be a prepared and resilient community.
